LRW #200 -- Polka Dots

Wowzas!!  How did it get to be Friday night?!?  Between flying home from Cuba this week, a pile of vacation laundry, setting my class up for the start of the school year, and all of the regular day-to-day duties,  and my blog just had to get neglected.  Better late than never, I guess.

This week's Little Red Wagon challenge is to use Polka Dots!
Here's my take:

Hope you can play along!

Thanks 4 your time!

LRW #199 -- Layers

I've scheduled this post; so as it goes live, I'll be waking up in hot, sunny Cuba!!  Hola amigos!!

This week at Little Red Wagon, Joanne has challenged us to use layers

She wants to see at least 3 layers on your project!   So I guess there are a few ways to interpret this; I created two projects using two different "layer" techniques.  First, I layered 3 different strips of patterned paper for this card:

For my second technique, I thought of those layered cakes you see all over Pinterest these days, like this:

. . . and I created stamped layers of the same sentiment

Show us what kind of layers you can create; be sure to stop by the rest of the DT blogs first for some more inspiration!

Thanks 4 your time!

A Scrapbook layout!! Say wha????

It has literally been months since I scrapbooked a layout.  In fact, I hadn't downloaded photos from my camera (other than card photos for the weekly LRW challenges) since January!!  I know, crazy!!  Well, with the summer weeks coming to a close, I was determined to do some scrapbooking this past week.
   Being a bit rusty, I needed some inspiration.  This August sketch over at Two Scrapbook Friends is just what I need to get a layout done fairly quickly.

Now remember, sketches are meant to be an inspiration point--you don't have to copy every last detail. I took some creative license and flipped the whole sketch upside down, and I added a photo with the title.
 Here are some detail shots:

Thanks 4 your time!

LRW #198 - Sunshine

Hello all!  Today is the perfect day for this challenge because here in Southwestern Ontario we could sure use some warm sunshine.  I have no idea where the summer went?!  Good thing I'll be in Cuban sunshine this time next week!!

Any way,  Jan's challenge this week over at Little Red Wagon is to use a SUN on your project.  My sun is peaking up from behind the cloud--just a simple circle. The bright yellow card base really packs some sunshine too though, I think!

Hope you can play along, and I sure hope it's warm and sunny in your neck of the woods!
Check out what the rest of the DT created too.

Thanks 4 your time!

LRW #197 -- Falling to Pieces

Yikes!  How is it already Thursday evening?!  Sorry for being a bit late on this week's LRW challenge.

  It would have been posted earlier, but I tried to find the oh-so-cute card I made for this week's challenge, but I think I must have shipped it off to be sold already without having taken a photo . . . anyway, Jayne has asked us to do some paper-piecing.  I found this card I made with some simple paper piecing for the cupcake liner.

Hope you can play along this week!

Thanks 4 your time!
